Companionship & Home Aide
If you are getting older, someone with a disability, or a loved one caring for some who is aging or has a disability, you may want to consider in-home care. In-home care can make you or a loved one’s day less stress full and improve your quality of life. Everyone’s situation is different, and in-home care can be tailored to your specific needs. We provide at-home support including companionship, personal care assistance, meal planning and preparation, grocery shopping, medication reminders, light housekeeping and laundry, transportation, and WellWithin℠ to engage the body, mind and spirit with activities such as art, music, pets and more. Below are a few reasons to consider hiring a home health aide for a couple of hours a day, every other day, or when needed.
We carefully match each client with a personal companion who shares similar personality traits and interests. One who as your steady companion becomes a true and trusted friend for you and the family. As your companion, we help you stay actively engaged through hobbies, social events and visits, and going to fun outings such as the movies, the mall or other local events.
As companions, we enjoy playing board games, piecing together puzzles, and playing cards to stimulate mental awareness. We love transporting and accompanying you and our clients to their favorite coffee shop or restaurant, planning social visits with family and friends, or assisting with the use of technology to communicate with others.
Personal Care Assistance
Our home aides customize a personal care plan that fits your specific needs for assistance in a residential home or living and care community located in Trumbull, Bridgeport, Norwalk, Stamford, Westport, and Fairfield, CT. This may include assistance with:
- Showering, bathing, or sponge baths
- Urinary or bowel matters
- Personal hygiene and grooming including hair care, skin care, oral hygiene, and denture care
- Mobility needs such as walking, or exercises to retain and strengthen mobility
Meal Planning, Preparation and Grocery Shopping
We collaborate with you to discuss and understand your dietary restrictions or personal food preferences. We encourage healthy eating habits by creating specific, nutrient-dense meal plans. In addition to preparing meals and snacks that are nutritious and delicious for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, our home health aides will do the grocery shopping.
Medication plays an important role in the daily lives of all individuals, especially those living with cognitive and/or physical impairments. Seniors with Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia, for example, are often prescribed medication to prevent memory impairment, promote sleep, reduce anxiety, and improve mood. Our caregivers assist you with medication management and provide reminders to take each medication as prescribed.
Light Housekeeping and Laundry
We understand the physical environment we live in greatly affects our well-being. Maintaining a clean and safe home further supports a sense of calm and relaxation. Light housekeeping is often an important service for our clients to improve the overall experience with Sheraton Caregivers. Maintaining a clean and orderly environment reduces the likelihood of an item being misplaced, or an obstacle becoming a safety hazard affecting your mobility. To maintain the overall cleanliness of your residence, we provide:
Bathroom maintenance for a sanitary environment
Bedroom maintenance including changing linens
Kitchen maintenance, such as cleaning countertops, microwave, stove and refrigerator
Dusting, mopping, vacuuming, and sweeping
Collection and removal of trash
Laundry: Wash, Dry and Fold
SAFETY, COMFORT & CONVENIENCE
In-home care allows you to stay in the comfort of your own home while still receiving assistance with cooking, bathing, cleaning, or other daily activities. A home health aide will give you independence while ensuring you are safe.
One of the main benefits of in-home care is it helps older adults keep their independence. A home health aide is there to help make life easier and assist you with tasks you need assistance with.
